What is CBD?
CBD is short for Cannabidiol. It is a compound found in cannabis plants. From a legal standpoint, there are two varieties of cannabis: hemp and marijuana. Hemp is legal in the United States since 2018. It is an agricultural product that produces high amounts of CBD and very low amounts of THC. (THC is the chemical in marijuana that causes the user to feel “high”).
Cannabinoids like CBD interact with our Endocannabinoid System (ECS). This is part of the nervous system in humans. It is still being researched but it may be involved in appetite, mood, pain-sensation, memory and sleep.
- It is legal in the United States.
- It is not intoxicating and does not make you feel “high”.
- CBD is not addictive.
What makes Marvelous Calm CBD different?
Pure CBD & THC-Free
These mints contain pure CBD. A lot of “CBD” sold actually contains many other compounds including THC. Our mints are THC-Free. They contain no THC and each batch is tested to make sure of that.
Low CBD Dosage
Many companies believe more is better but starting out with a smaller dosage can be beneficial. For most of our customers, 5 mg is just right. Everyone is different, and you can take more or less depending on your goals and how your body and mind feels after taking one CBD mint.
CBD Lozenges and Bioavailability
The way CBD is taken affects how much ends up being available to the body. This is called bioavailability. Marvelous Calm CBD mint lozenges melt under your tongue. This allows more of the CBD to end up being useful to your system than taking a pill.
Third Party Testing
Never buy CBD that isn’t tested by an independent lab. Our process starts with CBD isolate (pure CBD) that has been tested to make sure it has zero micro contaminates, pesticides, metals and solvents. After processing, a sample is sent from each batch to a 3rd party lab to check and make sure it has no THC, that it has the correct amount of CBD and that there are no microbiological impurities. (The report for each bottle we sell can be found on our site.)
